John Travolta and his First Holiday Since the Loss of Preston

The Travolta family has been experiencing their first holidays since the loss of Preston, who died at 57 in July after a two-year bout with breast cancer. Travolta announced the heartbreaking news on Instagram.

"Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered," he wrote. "I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while. But please know that I will feel your outpouring of love in the weeks and months ahead as we heal..."

The "Pulp Fiction" star marked his first Thanksgiving without his wife last month by expressing his gratitude for the outpouring of condolences for his family following her death. On July 12, 2020, Travolta's wife, Kelly Preston, died at the age of 57, two years after she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Her diagnosis had been kept quiet and was not widely publicized. Preston had been receiving treatment at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas; she had also been treated at other medical centers. Preston was at her home in Anthony, Florida when she died. Her death was announced in an Instagram post under an account belonging to John Travolta and Ella Bleu.
